Mini Bead Swap and Reveal

since we didn't get to be a part of the bead soup blog hop party this time, Sandy Richardson, Emanda Johnson, Alice Craddick and I had our own little bead swap and challenge..........Today is the reveal day!!! And here is what I made with the bea soup Emanda sent to me!She sent a beautiful enamel focal that was a pretty two tone pink on the front with some inclusions, and a deep burgundy on the back......she also sent numerous stone beads and some pearls and crystals also a cross that she made her self, and a sterling clasp......I chose not to use the clasp, because I thought the beads called out for copper......please check out the other ladies blogs to see what they have made


  1. WooHoo! What a lovely response to the challenge. This was so much fun.

  2. I think it is a very pretty set. I would love to see what you do with the cross as I did not see it in the picture.
    What fun.
    Thanks for the party ladies and have a great week!

  3. Oh miss Norma you have made a stunning set of semi precious stone pieces. I am very late viewing your creation as Emanda and my new daughter-in-love struck out very early to go to the
    Dallas Quilt Show. It was an awesome experience.We spent the whole day there, spent all our money and then went out to dinner. We were both very tired but satisfied. Now to cap off the day with a lovely bead swap
